Re: Lowes only approved me for $1,000?!?!?!?

Lowes is arguably the easiest GE card to get major luv on unfortunately the front line CSRs dont typically understand how credit works so whatever they told you, do so with a grain of salt.

Yeah Credit Solutions is the way to go.

Re: Lowes only approved me for $1,000?!?!?!?

Gecrb is pretty good for cli.....at least for me.  I just got a Lowes card with a 3K limit.  Didn't ask for more because I have gotten an Ebay abat ebates card within the past 45 days, one for 5k and the other 4k.   After a few mos will try for cli on all three.  Wouldn't hurt to call and try though for a quick cli On your card though.

+1, ask for $40k and they'll counter and meet you somewhere in the middle Smiley Wink


LOL.   FWIW, I've never seen a GE backed card go higher than $29K, but may as well aim high

For what it's worth......after posting this last night I decided "what the heck" I called credit solutions this AM and got bumped to 6K.....will look forward to 10K in 4-6 mos......the OP should really consider calling them
